President Muhammadu Buhari has mourned the death of foremost politician and businessman Alhaji Musa Musawa, a one-time Senator, saying the nation mourns the loss of a political giant and a true Nigerian.
Buhari described the deceased as “a towering grassroots politician with a nuanced understanding of matters who had very few parallels as a campaigner in his heydays.”
This was disclosed in a statement by Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.
“He lived a worthy life, leaving us with innumerable happy memories of accomplishments as a politician, businessman and community leader. We will miss him a lot,” said the President.
“May Allah repose his soul and grant fortitude to his family and the government and people of Katsina State to bear the loss.”
